Grow Your Own was held in Forster last Friday, and although it wasn't at home, the Newcastle Knights flag draped across the stage for The Gooch Palms set, and the Novocastrians flocking to the front of the crowd, made it feel as though it was. The boutique festival is in its second year, but despite it being early days, the festival was incredibly well laid out and organised. A highlight for me was the inclusion of a Welcome To Country, where the crowd gathered in a circle, the front rows sitting down so others could see, and respectfully watching.
Keep an eye on the GYO website for next year so you don't miss out!
Here's what I captured on the day.
